Every weekend when we ride around there's always someone that'll come up and tell us about the Suzuki Ninja 1600 they own that would walk on whatever bike they see. It's expected.

but this weekend a guy comes up and hangs out for a few minutes in a mesh jacket and Joe Rocket pants. Even had gloves in his pocket. So I assume he's new and I don't recognize which bike is his.

So I ask. And dude proceeds to tell me he just bought a Busa as his first bike, but laid it down earlier that day. So now I figured he's waiting for a tow, or something.

No, he's going to the club with his girl. In riding gear, although he took a car downtown. Not just a jacket (i've seen that fairly common) but even had riding pants on. That he wore driving downtown in a car..................

Needless to say he got brushed off pretty well and was a punchline for the rest of the evening. We invited him to ride on saturday night, but of course he never showed up.

Okay, I was put off by people that couldn't tell a KX from a CR suddenly wearing Fox motocross jerseys. but what the heck, I had to quit racing and still wear my Thor jersey on occasion.
But here's a guy in more gear than most real riders bother to wear, strutting around a club in his Rocket gear with no bike to be seen- and very likely no bike at all either.

GRRRRRR.

Lived in Hawaii for awhile we used to see that all the time, what was funnier was the cowboy gear complete with chaps and a competition number on the back of his shirt.
NO brains NO headaches. If you watch people long enough they are bound to do something stupid.

Me and my friends would sometimes wear our helmets driving home in our cars from AutoX and Drag events. It's funny the way people look at you, especially when there is a group of a 6 or 7 of you all in a line wearing helmets.

I've never understood the no helmet with jacket thing. Whats the point unless ya just wan't to die and leave a really good looking corpse (well your torso at least).
